    Hi everyone, I know nothing about freshers week apart from drink, sleep, drink, sleep, drink, sleep...
    What I would like to know is how much everyone spent during freshers? Just intrigued as to the price difference between nowadays festival prices and a weeks worth of drinking.
    Obviously people drink less/more than others therefore spending different amounts

    Thank youu

    About £200 in freshers fortnight, but that included buying books for my course etc.

    Plus I'm at Glasgow, so I had £1 drinks rather than the extortionate prices of London!

    I live at home so I didn't go to everything, but I spent maybe 50-70tops. Including taxis. Saying that I'm at Strathclyde which is also in Glasgow.

    Too much, pretty much all on alcohol. Not worth it.

    around £120ish in freshers fortnight including a first big shop, all freshers tickets and transport (bought my student oyster card and paid for some taxis)
    I ended up getting around 20 back as I sold one of my tickets. So yeah, £100. Not too much really considering it was the first week at uni in central london

    I spent probably around 30-40, I literally had no money (my student loan and grant arrived in november) so only had a ticket for one freshers event and I also went out with some people from a society but we stayed at the pub.
